Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on W. Little York in Harris County

It may not seem like the inclusion of the victim's BAC would change anything here, but it very well could. It's important folks understand why, since that details could result in complex legal consequences a victim's loved ones would be best served preparing for.

Harris County, TX Pedestrian Accident Kills 1 on W Little York Road

I had this case a while back with similar reports. A man walked onto the freeway where a car hit and killed him. As we retraced his steps that night, the facts showed the man had been drinking with friends during a night out at a bowling alley. There was clear evidence showing the establishment continued to serve him despite his obvious intoxication, which is illegal. Under Texas dram shop law, that made the establishment liable for the tragedy resulting from that intoxication.

Maybe nothing like that happened here, but I see no reason why it shouldn't get thorough attention from investigators. If some local business broke the law and contributed to someone's death, why should they get to continue business as usual like nothing happened? Shouldn't they face the appropriate consequences? If nothing else, making sure a grieving family gets clear answers should always be a priority.
